I've really enjoyed working with Mike and his team at Denali. I'm a very hands-off client since I live out-of-state, and his team has been phenomenal. They were able to get my home in Gilbert rented out quickly with quality tenants. They took care of all of the applications, screening, inspection, and move-in. I've been really happy with how they've communicated with me with regular statements and payments are prompt each month. This is my first time as a landlord, so I really appreciate Denali's professionalism and expertise. I would trust them to manage any property I own in the future.May 24, 2020VerifiedDenali Real Estate, LLC's reply

Hi Leo, Thank you for your kindness and a great review. It has truly been a pleasure to work with you thus far and we look forward to a long and prosperous partnership. Mike
As a first time "landlord", Denali Real Estate was very helpful with the entire process, taking the time to answer all of my questions and ensuring I understood everything. They kept me informed throughout the tenant review, and made me feel comfortable about the new occupants. I would highly recommend them for your property management needs.Dec 16, 2019Verified
My wife and I considered renting our home and had many questions for a property management company and who to call. Mike with Denali was exceptional. Upfront with answers and no pressure at all from him to make a decision on renting our house out. Mike communicated well with us and we never worried about him responding back to us, he always had an answer. Thank you, Mike!Aug 15, 2019VerifiedDenali Real Estate, LLC's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our process when working with a new client is to first understand their goals, objectives and experience. With this information we will tailor the approach going forward to ensure we maximize each client's time to answer questions they may have and offer guidance on what questions to ask and how to conduct a management company search. For a new client that has never owned rental property and will be a landlord for the first time, we will spend more time educating that owner on the marketplace, our management process, expectations as an owner and industry best practices. Seasoned owners that have used a management company before will often be looking for something different than what their current manager can provide so we will focus those discussions specifically on how are process is different and how we have been successful.
